Roca Altxerri

From the north of Spain hails this refreshing white that's perfect for the summer. This wine is bone dry with  angular but balanced acidity and notes of fresh grapefruit and Spring foliage on the nose. The palate is bright and lively with minerality and citrus nuances.

Greetings from Burlington Wine Shop,

Today we have a mix of Spanish wines that showcase the quality, value and variety Spain has to offer. The whites hail from the North, East and South with a light and racy Txakolina, a rich and dense Garnacha Blanca and a fun and funky Pedro Jimenez. For the reds we have a ripe and spicy red blend and a bold and structured Montsant. These are some fun wines that are well suited for the summer. We look forward to seeing you this afternoon at the shop.
                        Wine Sampling - Spain
             Saturday, August 10th - 1:00 - 7:00pm  
We'll begin our Spanish tasting with a zippy Txakolina from Roca Altxerri ($15.99), this wine is dry and racy, offering notes of grapefruit and Spring flowers. Next, we have the 3 Miradas from Alvear ($19.99), a Spanish white made by a sherry producer that delivers aromas of lemon and peach with mandarin orange on the palate and nuances reminiscent of a fortified wine. Our final white is a Garnacha Blanca from Celler Piñol (Reg. $12.99, Sale $8.99) with notes of honey and flowers on both the nose and palate. Our first red is Las Rocas El Renegado ($11.99), a medium-bodied red blend with a plush fruit character and a spicy, smooth finish. We'll round off the tasting with the Les Argiles d'Orto Vins Montant ($20.99), an expressive Catalan wine offering a fruity and floral nose backed by a full bodied palate with red fruit and herbal notes and the namesake clay minerality coming through on the finish.
